Welcome to the Universe of Imagination!

Action Figure Universe, where the comparative mythology of Joseph Campbell meets pop culture & modern mass media memorabilia, is an interactive entertainment scrapbook & resource site, all about figures of action & adventure of the mythic past, present & future, as they appear in their various forms in human history, popular art & the ever-expanding collectible toy market.

For me, collecting, enjoying & studying action figures isn't just about childhood memories.  It's an important part of personal growth & self-actualization, as well as a fun way to remain creative & imaginative throughout life's amazing journey.

Many of the action characters (heroes & villains alike) you will find here were conceived for adults, while others were originally intended for a younger audience.  Bearing in mind that no one is ever too old to be young at heart, I bid you welcome to the Action Figure Universe.

While you're here, feel free to explore the boundless reaches of child-like wonder & imagination that have long inspired people of all ages to not just dream, but to do, create & of course, PLAY.  As you step beyond the threshold of the so-called "real world," take heart & remember...

"The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play."

Johnny West Rides Again

Though far from complete as of yet, my ever expanding Marx toy collection is just starting to take shape in the various Johnny West pages of the Marx section of the Western Stars sector of the site.  So far, I've got 8 title cards up and 3 mostly complete pages, featuring my all time favorite western action figure, Johnny West, "the movable cowboy."  And his nearly identical cowboy brethren, of course.

A lot of roping, wrangling, blood, sweat, tears and pure love goes into this here affair, so I do hope you like what I've got so far.  I reckon there's always room for improvement, of course, so if you see something amiss, feel free to drop me a line.  My Johnny Wests and I will be hanging out at the ranch, just waitin' for ya.

So giddy up, partner!  Click the link below to mosey on over to the Will's Action Figure Universe Johnny West section.  Yee-ha!
